Ghacem opens depot at Sefwi Dwenase

Ghacem Limited has opened a depot at Sefwi Dwenase in the Sefwi-Wiawso Municipality in the Western Region with a storage capacity of about 60,000 bags (3,000 tonnes) cement.

This volume will be dispatched to the depot on a weekly basis for sale to towns and villages located in the Sefwi-Wiawso munipality in the Western Region and its environs only through distributors of Ghacem.

This brings to six the total number of depots by the leading cement manufacturer as it already has such distribution channels in Kumasi, Techiman, Tamale, Wa and Buipe.

Opening the depot, Nana Philip Archer, Commercial Director of Ghacem said the development was a move by the company to ensure its high quality cement is spread across the country and closer to the end users especially in the Sefwi-Wiawso area where distributors had a major challenge transporting their goods.

The company, he said, had invested in the purchase of new trucks to serve the depot and prevent any cement shortage as it meets the huge demand for Ghacem cement in the area and make it affordable as well.

Nana Archer entreated the chiefs and people in the area to give Ghacem the necessary support by purchasing its products, touting that Ghacem uses local raw materials including 25 per cent limestone in the production of its cement products.

The event was well attended by high-profile dignitaries and residents from Sefwi Dwenase and Sefwi-Wiawso in the Western Region and its environs.

Okatakyie Kwasi Bumagama II, Paramount Chief of Sefwi-Wiawso, who chaired the occasion, applauded the board and management of Ghacem for bringing cement closer to the area to spur development and hoped the new development will pave the way for government to create the Western North Region they have been praying for.

Louis Owusu Agyapong, Municipal Chief Executive of Sefwi-Wiawso who represented the Western Regional Minister, Kwaku Afriyie in his address observed the new depot in the region would open the local economy with its employment generation avenue and commended Ghacem for the investment.
